Fresno resident Bren Flowers, 48, was fighting breast cancer for the second time in six years. Bren received news in 2013 that she was terminal. As a true cancer warrior, Bren testified at a California Legislative hearing about the need for affordable Chemotherapy and she was selected to be featured in a documentary about the impact this experience has on women battling Cancer.

Bren added, “I was going through the most aggressive chemo treatment imaginable. It was like the chemo experience you see in the movies. Experiencing this dream photo shoot made such a difference in how I felt. I can't explain how good it felt to see myself as a beautiful woman again. What a gift to me and my family.”

On Wednesday January 29th 2014, thanks to the generosity of Steve Bisla, The Standard Restaurant & Lounge and LinkUs, the supporters of The Face of Cancer gathered for the premiere of two special videos.
